The Michigan appeals court says the state's medical marijuana law protects people who are accused of illegally transporting pot. In a 2-1 decision, the court threw out the misdemeanor conviction of a man in Clinton County, north of Lansing.
Callen Latz is a registered medical marijuana user. But he was charged in 2014 with violating a law that requires pot to be stored in a case in the trunk of a vehicle or in a spot that's not easily accessible.
The marijuana transportation law was signed in 2012, four years after voters approved medical marijuana for certain illnesses.
